Executive MBA Program Details
Team learning. Intimate classes. Side-by-side education with mid-career peers. These are the hallmarks of the BU EMBA, internationally recognized as a trailblazer in true executive education. Painstakingly designed and rigorously taught, the program ensures that your MBA is more than a degree. It’s a transformation.
Integrated: A Curriculum for Executives
The BU EMBA focuses on general management. We don’t limit you to narrow categories or rigid disciplines. You learn the way you work: by solving challenges that demand executive expertise and insight. The 18-month curriculum gives you a comprehensive business foundation, reinforced by advanced techniques. But it also takes you further: ensuring you harness your data and organization to drive key decisions in a global environment.
Intimate: Team-Based Learning, High-Flying Peers
Your fellow students are more than classmates. They’re extraordinary leaders from a diverse range of backgrounds and industries. So we select a class that is a true community: tightly bonded, impressively open, and dedicated to each other’s success. And we then emphasize personal development, leadership skills, and most of all team learning: integrated projects, iterated teams, and even team-taught cases. As an executive you’re working in a team environment; you should expect to learn the same way.
